This fitness gaming device encourages play outdoors. Currently seeking financing on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, HYBRIDPLAY turns playground equipment into a video game controller. The Spanish innovation consists of a clip that can connect any playground to mobile games encouraging kids (and adults) to get active.

To move on to the next level in the game, you have to complete a certain amount of physical activity. The HYBRIDPLAY system has two parts: the smart clip device and an app. The clip is attached to equipment like swings or slides and has a number of built-in sensors. The fitness gaming app has a catalog of games. What happens on the playground determines what happens in the game as well.
